Welcome to our spacious, remodeled and designer decorated 2nd floor, 2-bedroom Villa in the award winning, prestigious and gated Palmetto Dunes Oceanfront Resort on Hilton Head Island. Palmetto Dunes was named one of the Top 25 Family Resorts in the World by Travel and Leisure Magazine. Our villa is located right on the golf course in the extreme southern corner of St. Andrews Common which is furthest from roads, and other units. It has the absolute best views and it's in the quietest, most private corner of St. Andrews Common. The commercial vacation rental companies all wanted our villa, but we decided to list on Home Away / VRBO and give you a MUCH better price.
NOTE: This is NOT the much smaller 2 bedroom unit with the small deck and the 2nd bedroom in a loft with a spiral staircase. This is the largest and most luxurious 2-bedroom villa in St. Andrews.
You'll need to visit to appreciate this exceptional, spacious and truly unique 1,400 sq. ft., 2-bedroom, one-level villa with its cathedral ceilings and stylish decor. You'll be in your own, private tropical paradise with spectacular views in every direction. A huge Magnolia tree, various Palms, Palmettos, Live Oaks with Spanish Moss, other tropical plants and a small lagoon frame beautiful views of the George Fazio Golf Course. There are no other villas, parking lots, walls or other obstructions to spoil your privacy and the tropical scenery. This is exactly why we were willing to pay a premium price for this premium St. Andrews Common villa.
If you need a place to STAY, get a hotel room. If you want a place to really LIVE on the Island, this is your villa!
Our villa is professionally decorated and furnished in the Tommy Bahama style with tropical floral fabrics and art and tropical wood appointments. You'll be impressed with the open floor plan and atrium windows that fill the living spaces with light. The afternoon sun is filtered by the large beautiful trees, just off the deck, which provide a totally tropical feel.
You'll prepare a glass of wine or a drink at the eight-foot long wet bar which separates the living space from the dining space two steps above. The 42-inch Panasonic, high definition flat screen television is perfect for viewing the extended high-def channel selection; watching a DVD on the Panasonic Blue Ray player; or reviewing your day's beach photos using the TV's built-in photo viewing features. The furnishings throughout are high quality. The sleeper sofa will accommodate a 6th person or a couple of children. Morning coffee or sunset with a cold drink are absolutely perfect while sitting in one of the bar-height, bistro chairs on the spacious, private wrap-around deck. The deck has room for everyone in the party with six chairs (four bar height) and three tables. There is also a BBQ grill on the deck for preparing a perfect steak or fresh fish.
You'll find a private retreat in the master suite with high ceilings, golf course views and separate french door access to the villa's large, wrap-around deck. Everything is fresh from the tile, granite, vanities and fixtures in the bath to the furniture and 32 inch flat screen hi-def TV. Woven woods provide privacy for the windows and deck doors. Our designer advised that we should give special attention to the bedding as a good night's sleep is very important for us and our guests to fully enjoy our time on the Island. You'll sleep on the best, most supportive and most comfortable king mattress and foundation that we could find.
The roomy second bedroom also has beautiful, high quality furnishings and shades to provide privacy for the windows that face the front, entry-side of the villa. This bedroom has a queen bed for couples: an extended-length twin bed for another golfer or family member and a 24 inch flat screen TV/DVD combo. The bedding is the same high quality bedding that we chose for the master suite. The hall bath, just outside the second bedroom, has also been completely renovated with new tile, vanity and granite.
On days when you choose to eat in, food preparation will be a joy in the well equipped kitchen all new appliances and refinished cabinets. The refrigerator has filtered water and ice in the door and the range is a state of the art INDUCTION cook top and CONVECTION oven. Both are stainless steel. All pots and pans are brand new. There is a new tile floor with the original tile counter tops and back splashes. You can wash your cloths and beach towels in the full size washer and dryer just off the kitchen.
Behind the kitchen and near the villa entrance is a study with new desk, chair and artwork. This is a perfect place to open your laptop, access the villa's private wireless network and make that reservation at your favorite Hilton Head Island restaurant. There is also a printer for your use. There is also a small covered deck off the study with two chairs and a small table where you will find a private space to read a book or have a private conversation.

We are Stan and Jane Heasley. We are both now retired and thoroughly enjoying life. We absolutely love Hilton Head Island and we're sure that you will too. It's like no other place in the country.
Stan and Jane Heasley purchased this villa in 2011
Hilton Head Island is like no other place in the US mainland. We have rented houses and vacationed along the East Coast from Maine to Florida and on the West Coast as well. We've enjoyed the variety, but many places were wind blown sand, heavily commercialized or both. Hilton Head Island is very different. The Island is a forest of mature tropical trees and plants. Commercial signs and storefronts are pushed back into the trees to preserve the island feel. It looks very natural and tropical, but it's truely amazing the variety of activities, culture, restaurants, family activities and... did I mention the pristine beaches? If your looking for action or relaxation, Hilton Head Island has it all.
The uniqueness of our vacation rental villa begins with its size, the largest in St. Andrews Common. This is NOT the much smaller 2-bedroom unit with the small deck and 2nd bedroom in a loft up a spiral staircase. Our villa is a very large, 1400 sq. ft., 2-bedrrom, 2-bath flat with cathedral ceilings and atrium windows. Our villa is also in the best location in St. Andrews. It is in the extreme southern corner of the complex furthest from roads and other housing. It has the most private setting in St. Andrews and has the very best, panoramic views in St. Andrews. From the large, private, elevated, wrap-around deck there are no walls, parking lots or other buildings to spoil the beautiful, tropical golf course views. We paid a premium price when we bought this villa as it is a premium property, in a premium location... the absolute best available in St. Andrews Common.
Our villa is also totally remodeled and designer decorated. Everything is fresh from the floors to the ceilings including furniture, wall art, bedding, appliances, light fixtures, lamps, bath tile, bath vanities, granite, etc.
The villa is located in the Prestigious Palmetto Dunes / Shelter Cove Oceanfront Resort with all of the resort activities, golf, tennis, kayaking, charter fishing, dolphin watching, private beach access points, etc. along three miles of the best beaches on the east coast. The Resort has everything but, if you decide to leave the Resort, you can bike about anywhere on the Island from this perfect mid-Island location. Two cruiser bikes are provided for your use and additional bikes may be rented at a 20% discount when staying at our villa. With the special code we will provide, you will receive DISCOUNTS ON GOLF, TENNIS AND RENTALS OF BIKES, KAYAKS, CANOES, ETC.
The villa is in the middle of the action for those looking for fun and activities, yet very private and secluded for those looking for some tropical rest and relaxation. It is truly the best of all worlds.
This condo at St. Andrew's Common was so comfortable The views onto the golf course are beautiful and the condo has everything you need. We appreciated the well-equipped kitchen and the lovely linens. We communicated back and forth with Stan a few times and he is friendly, prompt and extremely helpful. We'll be back for sure.
This property in St Andrews Common, as you enter Palmetto Dunes, provides the perfect setting for two couples to enjoy all that Hilton Head Island has to offer. The condo is spacious and the wrap around porch offers a great setting for cocktails and preparation for many of the local attractions and dining opportunities. A must is an evening at The Jazz Corner for a great meal and show.....make reservations before you arrive....always "Sold Out". Great golf is minutes away as are bike & walking trails, and restaurants/pubs galore. This condo gave us the perfect setting to end one year and start the next one!!
Once again we had a great time in Stan and Jane's Villa in Palmetto Dunes! Everything was just great and as promised! Enjoyed being close to all activities and also the cleanliness of the Villa! Really comfortable for all of our family! Looking forward to coming back soon again! Ed and Lonna
The process of coordinating and booking our vacation was smooth and informational. Stan was prompt with replies and eager to assist us with the timing of our arrival (We drove from Wisconsin, and would be arriving much earlier than check-in time listed). The information sheet provided was very organized and helpful. The villa itself was everything as advertised and more. The cathedral ceilings and generous layout made us feel like we were staying in our own little mansion. The location of the villa is definitely one of the highlights. It's right on the George Fazio golf course. It felt very secluded. Granted, we were there during the off season, but I can see how you would still have a lot privacy even during peak times. The hurricane cleanup was a bit noisy, as well as the road construction (paving of the roads leading to and from Palmetto Dunes), but that can't be helped and certainly isn't the norm on the island year-round (nor is it specific to Palmetto Dunes). We were simply happy to still have a place to stay after Hurricane Matthew. It was still amazingly peaceful. We would often sit out on the wrap-around deck and just listen to the birds and other animals, or enjoy the sunset through the trees. We wanted to stay in the villa as much as we wanted to go to the beach! The furniture is extremely comfortable (bed, couches, chairs, window seat). The natural light flowing through the entire villa was my favorite part. The kitchen had everything you would need to cook a meal. There were plenty of towels, and even if you needed more, you have your own washer/dryer. We appreciated the bikes and chairs in the closet for our use. The beach is a 10 minute bike ride with gorgeous scenery. There's paths to bike on, as well as a section of the road for bikers. The general store is conveniently close by and has everything you need. We searched for months trying to find the best villa (size, location, cost) and this was hands-down the best option. We will be staying here as much as possible in the years to come! We're already discussing when we're coming back! An additional note: We will be receiving our security deposit back this week already from the owners (we arrived home yesterday)!
The property was exactly as advertised. We had everything we needed. The condo was clean and very well supplied. The two very minor issues we had were dealt with in a timely manner. Stan could not have been more helpful throughout the rental process and during our stay at his condo. We will definitely return again and will surely recommend this property to our family and friends. Wonderful week. Thank you, Stan.
